Kromek will exhibit a range of its portable radiation detection products, ranging from wearable devices to those mounted on ground vehicles, which are used by British and American government agencies.

Kromek will be featuring its latest hand-held radioisotope detection device, the D5 RIID, the smallest, lightest and most accurate hand-held detector currently available. It features all the hallmarks of Kromek’s commitment to enhancing device speed, instant identification, accuracy, connectivity and endurance, while at the same time offering a full remote capability to both protect the operator and link different locations.

The D5 RIID has been designed to fit into the palm of the hand or be installed in a vehicle. Weighing just 660g, it has a <24-hour endurance and with a dual system of an internal battery backed up by widely-available AA-sized batteries means there is no need for an external charging station. And despite its small size, the D5 RIID has an extensive built-in radioisotope library, to accurately identify even the smallest samples and the lowest dose rates. The device has a networked capability to allow results to be transmitted to wherever they are needed in real time.

The D3S hand-held Radioisotope Identification Device will also be at the Symposium. It is widely used in the United States of America by agencies inside the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security. The detector also has all the key Kromek features as standard. Its autonomous or semi-autonomous reach-back detection and analytical capabilities all lessen the time operators are directly exposed to radiological hazards and its instant ID feature has been welcomed by many of its longstanding users.

Craig Duff,  Kromek’s CBRN Business Manager, said: “We are delighted to be attending this year’s Counter Threat Symposium in Farnborough. Although Kromek has delivered many detectors around the world, as a British company designing and manufacturing in the north-east of England, we are particularly keen to help the UK government fulfil its different requirements for portable radiation detection products. Our combination of light weight and long-enduring detectors are ideal for the users across government and in the emergency services.”
